Devoleena Bhattacharjee has denied reports that she is quitting popular Star Plus fiction ‘Saathiya’.

Over the past few days, rumours surfaced that she would be step out of the role of Gopi if it meant playing grandmother. Initially, Bhattacharjee was not happy playing a mother to grown-up kids but nevertheless she carried on with the show. However, this time around, she expressed rejection in playing an older character.

The 25-year old actress previously told Times Of India, “Isn’t it enough that a young woman like me is playing mother to such grown-up girls? I was patient so far. But I certainly won’t be comfortable playing a grandmother. I will wait till the creative team takes a decision. If they take a leap, I will quit.”

However, talking to BizAsia today, Bhattacharjee said, “Nothing is confirmed yet, not the storyline, not even my quitting. As soon as I know the further track…Will be able to decided what next.”

‘Saathiya’ remains one of Indian television’s most watched shows.
